Electronic Dance Music (EDM)

Artists and labels who specialize in Electronic Dance Music (EDM) are the poster children for how to make money in the music business today. EDM artists earn more from touring and live performances than from digital downloads and record sales. The focus is on marketing, social media and fan base development rather than record sales. EDM deals require new business models, and we help you craft agreements that really work in the EDM industry.

"Industry standard" is a thing of the past. All participants need to stay open minded if they want to stay in the game. Media savvy marketing teams who can engage with the fans on social media platforms are more valuable than traditional label services. Brand building is key.

HRBEKKunstler helps our clients to develop business models that are flexible and relevant to the music industry today, and contracts that work for all players in the EDM community.
